Crab-stuffed Puff Pastry
Another one of Thelma's creations. Our now deceased neighbor was the perfect hostess and the life of the party; also a real master at creating unique appetizers. This is one of her best.
For a cocktail party, order 5 dozen puff pastry shells from the bakery, each 1½" to 2" in diameter. Double the recipe to fill 5 dozen small appetizer servings.
